Greenloop is committed to the environment in everything we do, and we donate a minimum of 1% of your purchase to support the environment.

Greenloop supports sustainable textiles, recycling and re-use, renewable energy, reduction of green house gases, organic farming, sweat-shop free production, and environmental non-profit groups every single day through the products we offer.

 GRIST - Let's face it: reading environmental journalism too often feels like eating your vegetables. Boiled. With no butter.

But at Grist, we believe that news about green issues and sustainable living doesn't have to be predictable, demoralizing, or dull. We butter the vegetables! And add salt! And strain metaphors!

We exist to tell the untold stories, spotlight trends before they become trendy, and engage the apathetic. We're fiercely independent in our coverage; we throw brickbats when they're needed and bestow kudos when they're warranted. And while we take our work seriously, we don't take ourselves seriously, because of the many things this planet is running out of, sanctimonious tree-huggers ain't one of them.

Getting Real: The smarter, faster, easier way to build a successful web application - Getting Real is the business, design, programming, and marketing philosophies of 37signals — a developer of web-based software used by over 1 million people and businesses in 70 countries. You can purchase a PDF download, read the book entirely online, or if you must, buy a hard-copy of the book. Why is the book relevant? 37signals used the unconventional Getting Real process to launch five successful web-based applications (Basecamp, Campfire, Backpack, Writeboard, Ta-da List), and Ruby on Rails, an open-source web application framework, in just two years with no funding, no debt, and only 7 people. The essence of simplicity and sustainability expressed in web design.

Carry Sustainable

  1. Carry a sustainable canvas bag when you shop and when asked, "Paper or plastic?" just answer, "Sustainable."
  2. Next step, raid that stockpile of disposable bags you have at home and look through your pantry. Bag up some non-perishable food items and take them to a local food kitchen. 
  3. Final step, take any left over disposables to be recycled.
